@MsPanda:  Give your FI the computer and have him lock it away somewhere. Weddingbee never lets me finish my homework. My problem? All of my homework is on the internet. Hence why it took me 3 hours to do a multiple choice chemistry quiz today that should have taken an hour.

make lists. small, bite-sized tasks. in pretty colors. do the tasks. check them off. feel good. (works mildly)

*** however buying pens in pretty colors on the internet is a really great way of procrastinating. i apologize.

I am a terrible procrastinator. I have no suggestions because I can’t even help myself! When I have my marketing exam, I read all 5 chapters the night before. Luckily, the lowest grade I’ve made is a B.

 

Good luck!

This sounds really weird but I always found that if I took an entire morning to just…go work out, come back, shower, clean my home, i’d feel in a much better place to be productive for school.  I finished my doctorate in 2010, so I got through it! 😛 Sometimes it just takes separating yourself from the mess…

I definitely agree that having a planner with things to check off helps.  What I do (which is super dorky but keeps me focused) is give myself mini rewards after each 90 minutes of studying.  Like if I do 90 minutes without getting side tracked then I can take a break and grab a drink at Starbucks, or watch an episode of New Girl.  It can usually keep me somewhat focused.  Good luck!
